Speeches Shim

Landlocked in the Himalaya mountain range between India and China, Nepal remains one of the world’s poorest nations. Following a decade-long insurgency that ended in 2006 and earthquakes that killed more than 9,000 people and destroyed more than 755,000 homes in 2015, Nepal continues to face development challenges.

The United States supports progress toward a democratic, resilient and prosperous Nepal. USAID promotes inclusive and effective governance, sustainable economic growth, health and nutrition, primary education, post-earthquake reconstruction and helps build resilience to climate change and natural disasters.
